2018 Season

Mets Pre-Game Report – 4/16/18

After a walk-off home run hit by Wilmer Flores catapulted the Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Brewers, the Mets hope they have a little more magic at their disposal in a pivotal divisional matchup against the Washington Nationals.

Jacob deGrom will start tonight against RHP Jeremy Hellickson, who was just added to the Nationals roster today. deGrom showed great resolve in an outing that was turbulent at times, allowing four earned while striking out six hitters against the Marlins on Tuesday night.
